Slacker Radio & Verizon Collaborate to Bring Slacker Radio app to Android Tablets


Verizon Wireless and Slacker are collaborating to bring the latest Slacker Radio application to the Android tablet. The company noted the app is "highly visual" and comes with a "content-rich interface to get the most from a fast 4G LTE connection". We may recall, Verizon introduced its Innovation Program to promote its 4G LTE ecosystem through strategic collaborations.

Slacker Radio for the Android tablet features:

* A station tile display with horizontal and vertical scrolling
* Preview of stations before playing
* Optimized browser for convenient content discovery
* Simplified navigation

The app offers lyrics, album reviews, artist profiles and more in a single platform. Slacker boasts the new app "combines the hands-off listening experience... with hands-on, in-depth music discovery perfected for a high speed network."

Slacker Radio offers a fully-customizable online radio experience in the US and Canada. It has over 150 stations, personalized ABC News as well as ESPN sports content, comedy, custom artist-hosted showcase stations and leading music festival stations featuring artist commentary and exclusive interviews.
